PanOptix Trifocal IOL
PanOptix® Trifocal IOL: A Full Range of Vision with One Lens
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the first and only trifocal lens in the U.S. The Alcon AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal intraocular lens (IOL) is now a replacement lens option for cataract surgery patients. Eye Associates of Tucson is proud to offer this lens for our patients.
PanOptix is clinically shown to deliver an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision while significantly reducing the need for glasses after surgery. Most patients who choose this lens are able to read text messages on their smart phones, work on a computer and even drive without the need for glasses. This is due, in part, to ENLIGHTEN® Optical Technology, a proprietary design that optimizes intermediate vision without compromising near and distance vision.
Cataracts have a way of limiting your activities because they cause your vision to become blurry, cloudy and yellowed. Patients who live active lives may choose to upgrade their cataract surgery by choosing this trifocal lens, rather than a monofocal lens that only offers clear vision for one distance. During a cataract evaluation at our office, our Tucson cataract surgery doctors will assess your eye health and determine if this trifocal lens would be a good option for your vision.
